Video: ProbCause Ft. Donnie Trumpet & KSRA – “Pale Moonlight”

posted by Ellena Rodriguez November 9, 2015

ProbCause has officially released visuals to his jazzy tune “Pale Moonlight” via Yahoo Music. The record comes right off of ProbCause’s latest 2014 project Waves. The EP features a ton of collaborations with artists such as Chance the Rapper, Twista, the Hood Internet, Donnie Trumpet, and KSRA. And now ProbCause has let directors (& my good friends) Danny Farber and Mac Kozi make their music video directorial debut on this dope track.

The new music video matches the record incredibly taking us back in time to Chi’s jazz club scene. The portrayal of the jazz era displays not only a fun night out at the Green Mill jazz club, but also the dark crime-filled nights of Chicago.

I was really impressed with the outcome of the music video and I am looking forward to the many future projects of Danny Farber and Mac Kozi.

Check out the clip up above!
